Jim Barry, from Artisan Mortgage Company was wonderful. I happened to be passing the office in Islip one day and decided to stop by and ask a few questions. This was before looking for a new home. The 1990’s mortgage crisis had me skeptical. I did A LOT of research on mortgages. I checked out banks, private mortgages and a few Mortgage Brokers. After all the research - I circled back to Artisan Mortgage Company. I’m so glad I did.
I was involved in a short sale that was taking way too long. I needed to be in a specific school district when the school year started for my children. Right before the school year was to start I backed out of the short sale and found another house. I needed a mortgage immediately. Jim was a huge help. He helped expedite the entire process. I highly recommend Artisan Mortgage.
Jim Barry and Artisan Mortgage as a whole were absolutely tremendous throughout the entire home buying experience. From start to finish, Jim was a great communicator and was honest with every question asked of him no matter how big or small.
The personalized service that they provide is second to none especially compared to the big banks.
I have and will continue to recommend Jim and his company to everyone in need of a home buying and mortgage expert.

Dion Goolman was recommended to me during a deal after a debacle with an out-of-state lender. I had a nice family with a good job and income that could not get a loan through the other lenders because of a work history discrepancy.
Without the assistance of Dion my buyers would have had to wait another year and a half to be eligible for a loan through the other lenders we have used in the past, and the house they fell in love with would have been long gone.
I have since worked with Dion a few more times and he has been consistently enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
I look forward to doing business with Artisan Mortgage Company in the future.
Dion Goolman has worked with several of my clients. He educated them through the process and helped them work through credit issues that held them back from obtaining their mortgage.
In every case, my clients were motivated to follow Dion's instructions and they are homeowners!
I recommend Dion Goolman with confidence as a Real Estate Professional to educate and serve my clients.
From the very start Dion Goolman helped us in every way he could to obtain a mortgage.
From helping us with our credit score to giving us advice on saving money; he was an upfront, no nonsense person but handled it very respectfully.
He never made us feel bad for the position we were in, he was just willing and able to help.
We would like to thank Artisan Mortgage Company for making the loan process easy and smooth.
We worked along with Jim who walked us through the process. He was very thorough in explaining each step and if we had any questions, he got back to us quickly with an answer.
We truly can say that buying a home this time around was way less stressful, and we are happy that we made the decision to use this company.
We recommend Artisan to anyone seeking a mortgage to purchase their new home.

Albert Einstein once said: “Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.”
From my initial phone call to Artisan Mortgage on through to my closing it was very clear that Artisan’s first priority is “to be of value”.
Their success is simply a reflection of putting the client’s needs front and center.
In particular, Jim Barry and Gil Citrin are the embodiment of “value”. I came with a few more problems than your average home buyer; they stuck with me through every issue and obstacle when lesser men would have given up.
It is a very rare thing indeed to find a company that is as professional and knowledgeable as Artisan is and yet leaves you with the feeling, when the entire process is done, that you just made new friends.
I would not hesitate to use Artisan Mortgage again or recommend them to anyone.
Working with Jim was the best experience for us.
He took the time to understand us and our finances; and work with us to get the best deal we could.

We would absolutely recommend Jim and Artisan Home Mortgage to anyone and everyone!
We couldn’t be happier with our experience!

He is amazing! Thank you!
Artisan Mortgage and Jim are honest, reliable and get it done.
They have done a dozen or so mortgages for me and look forward to using them again!
We were very happy in the way our mortgage process went. Our mortgage closed on time in a very professional way.
My husband and I are first time homeowners and were overwhelmed with the type of loans and the mortgage process in general.
Gil was absolutely amazing and made this entire journey user friendly to us. He was always professional, thorough, patient, reliable and a pleasure to work with.
At the time of our closing, we decided against having an attorney represent us, however, Gil took it upon himself to come support, advise and explain what we were signing.
We couldn't have done this without him and highly recommend Gil (and Artisan Home Mortgage) to anyone in the market.

From the beginning of the loan application to the closing of my home the wonderful staff of Artisan Mortgage and Debra Chiappetta made it a smooth and problem free process for a First time homebuyer as myself.
The ease of completing applications via email made the process move even faster. Debbie made the stresses of home buying disappear. Her contacts and expertise in the field allowed avoidance of obstacles that are often typical in the mortgage process.
Communication with the entire Artisan staff members were very accessible and quick to respond to all my messages and questions. The other Mortgage companies I initially shopped around with were the complete opposite and very difficult in terms of communication.
The Artisan Mortgage Company got me the best interest rate possible. I can’t wait to do more business in the future with your company.
If you want to make your life much easier with guaranteed success, the Artisan Home Mortgage Company is for you.
